    Colorado Buffaloes true freshman cornerback Sherrard Harrington injured his hip today in practice and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks according to Adam Munsterteiger. Already working to replace departed starters Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown, the Buffaloes lost sophomore corner Jered Bell to a torn ACL this past Saturday. This most recent injury puts another dent in the Buffs secondary.
    While the injury, and recovery time, aren't necessarily that long, Harrington desperately needed this time to learn the defensive schemes and show the coaching staff what he could do. He wasn't expected to come in and immediately start, but with so little experience at the position anything would have been possible. Harrington is now expected to take a redshirt season this year. Let's hope for a quick recovery.

    4 to 6 weeks is up. Any reason he's not being called upon? I would expect that pulling DD Goodson's redshirt so he could switch from RB to CB would have been lower on the options list that pulling CB Sherrard's redshirt.

    Did I miss an update on Sherrard's health?

    Embree has been vehement that the redshrit is not comign off of harrington.... There were rumors his hip issue was pre-existing and would probably require all year to sort out.

    Even if they thought he was healthy, at this point the risk of any type of reinjury probably outweighs the benefit of him playing in 4 or 5 games. They need him ready to go from day one of Spring ball so that he can start the first game next year.
